Music Lessons Electronically

Music lessons online

In an article from The New York Times published on January 10th, writer Catherine Saint Louis reports on how people are taking advantage of utilizing Skype and other online conferencing tools to take music lessons. For some it is on the to do list to take music lessons and now it can become a reality in a very different way. The article is called “With Enough Bandwidth, Many Join the Band” explains how this idea has taken a stronghold.

The advantages:

  • Players of niche instruments now have more access to teachers.
  • Parents can simply send their child down the hall for lessons rather than driving them, and
  • teachers now have a new way to build their business.

One parents claims: “It’s accessibility with quality,” she said.

The concerns:

  • Their chief reservation is that teachers can’t manipulate a student’s fingers to fine-tune the subtleties of playing a string instrument.
  • A lot of people don’t trust that the experience is the same.

Imagine you could have students from anywhere in the world.
